Midweek Match Review

22nd March, 2008

The Wilkinson Sword Trophy Final remains tantalisingly poised after the first leg in midweek.

It was an even encounter at Carnarvon Street as Teversal and Hall Road Rangers played out a 1-1 draw.

Danny Tighe put the hosts ahead on 32 minutes before David Ingram levelled matters for Rangers with seventeen minutes remaining.

The second leg takes place at Dene Park on the 2nd of April.

Meanwhile, in the League, Winterton Rangers' seemingly relentless charge to the Premier Division title continued with a 4-1 win at Mickleover Sports.

They had gone behind through a 10th minute Mark Finlay strike before Rob Northen and David Watson gave them a half-time lead.

Watson added his second and Rangers' third on the hour mark before Andy Holt completed the scoring on 74 minutes to increase their lead at the top of the table to fifteen points.

Liversedge remained in third place, almost mathematically out of the title race, as they were held 1-1 at home to Shirebrook Town.

Both goals came within a five minute spell around the half-hour mark as Daniel Cooper put Sedge ahead before Craig Cantrell claimed a point for the visitors.

The point eased Shirebrook's relegation fears a little as they moved up into fifteenth, four points away from the bottom two.

A 1-0 home win over Nostell Miners Welfare saw fourth-placed Pickering Town close the gap between themselves and the sides immediately above them, Richard Whitfield's 51st minute strike settling the encounter.

An Andy Howland second-half brace claimed a 2-0 win for Eccleshill United at Arnold Town in the battle of the Eagles whilst Rob Cam and Scott Bates claimed a victory by the same scoreline for Hallam at home to Long Eaton United.

Rainworth Miners Welfare tightened their grip on second place in Division One with a 2-0 win at Leeds Met Carnegie.

Robbie Clarke broke the deadlock on 29 minutes before Danny Bainbridge doubled their advantage in first-half injury time.

They moved four points clear of third-placed Gedling Town who were held 2-2 at Worsbrough Bridge Athletic after taking a two goal lead.

Barry Payne and Matthew Roche had put them in command in the opening twenty minutes before Kieran Gallagher struck twice to share the spoils.
